  1. Is there anyway to automatocally remove red eye in PS 7. I have been using
    the magic wand and fill but wonder is I've missed something?

    Yes, you've missed Channels.
    Select the RED Channel, choose your black brush, and darken the white eye area.

    There are a dozen ways to remove red-eye. And there are dozens of red-eye
    type removal problems. Automation might be OK if you had a common red eye
    effect, but often the effect varies so much that automated solutions don't
    always work, then you have to back up. Catch light can vary in it's size
    and realism, or the size of the pupil area can be exaggerated, to name a
    couple, depending on camera angle and lighting. I find that each photo
    often requires a slightly different approach.

    The main idea is to desaturate the area, then fill with black, since the
    pupil is always black and it is the iris that imparts eye color which you
    want to retain. Most tutorials call for using the desaturate function. I
    prefer using the sponge tool in desaturate mode to tease the color out
    carefully within the iris, then the burn tool to darken it to black. This
    also give me a chance to alter the pupil size slightly if needed. I haven't
    seen this given as a common technique.
